'Groovy Babes' - the ultimate synth/porn website

Isn't it refreshing when national stereotypes come true? While English -speaking synthy websites are filled with a chiptune controversy, a new DJ control surface and a 1940s electronic pioneer, the French do it differently. The Groovy Babes special on Oldschool-Sound.com is a lengthy flash slideshow which collects every picture they can find of (mainly) attractive women with synths, ranging from #1 MT pinup Cynthia Webster (left) to Kate Bush suggestively fondling her Fairlight (centre) to... well, I really don't know what that picure on the right is. It's very mildly NSFW, including a strange picture of a '60s topless girl group and what looks like a '70s Playboy shoot featuring a Moog Prodigy. (via Matrix Synth, which has recently moved to: matrixsynth.blogspot.com, and is still updated every, like, six minutes with an unstoppable stream of cool things)

Too bad they squished and stretched the images. That completely ruined the entire idea.
i disagree thelin, i still got a hard on.
perhaps you'll get excited by this hot chick who's not into synths at all!
aw man you gotta know not to mess with a chick who's into the Proclaimers.

isn't that suzanne ciani on the left?
I don't think so, but I'm not really sure. I thought it was Cynthia because of this post from CreateDigitalMusic. Isn't Suzanne Italian? Mystery girl with big modular doesn't look Italian to me...
Hmm, I wonder if that was *my* Moog Prodigy..?

That somewhat worrying implies that my synths have had a wilder sex life than I have...

I must get out more... :D
yeah, too bad about the stretching of the pix, you'd think someone into tech (even retro-tech) would know better.

Good subject matter though.
The "strange picture of a '60s topless girl group" was from a Danelectro ad.
thanks for showing me the original link. you are right, that is not suzanne ciani. it is also not a buchla ... that's an e-mu modular.

i wouldn't mind knowing who that actually is though.
Didn't we see this before?

Yeah, well, I was on holiday in February....

I think it merits reposting, anyway!
There is a great picture in the latest issue (Oct 2005) of the music mag The Wire, a nice old English lady (the composer Eliane Radigue) playing a large modular. I can only wish my grandma did the same thing. :)

Well worth a read, that issue also has a long article on Boards of Canada.
There is a shot in the movie Xanadu of "the Tubes" playing some crap rawk-song where their goofy synth player wraps up some writhing sex-kitten in the patch cables of his modular synth. She's all 'ooh strap me down!" about it.

Got me excited....

(it's during the 'lover, i won't take the backseat tonight" song)
I have two words for you Tom: "Chicks'n'Synths"
(Or is that three?)
Anyway, I look forward to the debut of the magazine...
It's not Cynthia Webster, that's for darn sure!!
Kate's bush pictured with her fairlight. There's not a porn site on the net hotter than that sight.
